Trivia

Bud Spencer was usually bearded in his Western roles, but the one you see in TODAY WE KILL... is a false one. This was because Bud had just finished filming another Western called BEYOND THE LAW, in which he played an uncharacteristic role as a clean-shaven, suit-wearing, miner's boss (starring Lee Van Cleef), and did not have time to grow a full beard for the Irish outlaw, O'Bannion, in Tonino Cervi's film.

Alternate Versions

The US DVD release by VCI Entertainment is packaged under its US title "Today We Kill Tomorrow We Die." However this disc contains the 95 minute Canadian version with the title "Today Its Me Tomorrow You" and is pan-and-scanned although the box claims to be a "widescreen" version. See more »

Have I got a job for you…. 10 grand worth.
17 February 2008 | by lost-in-limboSee all my reviews

Dario Argento… Italian horror-specialist?! Well one of them anyway. Yep Argento co-penned this highly enjoyable spaghetti western that had a strong ensemble cast of interesting names to boot. Featuring Brett Halsey, Bud Spencer, William Berger and quite a memorable Tatsuya Nakadai… with a machete! Not only fun and absorbing, but one of the better entries of the long-listed and wide-ranged spaghetti sub-genre. The story is your basic revenge formula, but the script is sharp, unsparing and riddled with well-judged humour that never takes away from the gradual build-up to a thrilling, if offbeat standoff in swampy woodland terrain. These final passages are very well delivered by director Tonino Cervi, by pulling out an atmospheric tone together with the bold violence. But before even leading up to all of this, are some reliably creative and gusty set-pieces that aren't out of place. The brisk style is evident, and music composer Angelo Francesco Lavagnino's flamboyant score randomly punctuates some uncanny sounds. While, the formidably cunning camera-work of Sergio D'Offizi adds to the intensity. Japanese actor Nakadai is stupendous, and had me transfixed with his vibrant expressions as the shady, clever weasel-like villain. He stole every shot he was in. Halsey basically just looked good in black, and stared you down with that steely glance in a fitting performance as the revenge seeking heroine. Spencer bombards the screen with his robust personality and stature. The pacing stays tight, and pretty dry with little in the way of lapses.
